The Flightless Cormorant, also known as the Galapagos Cormorant, is one of the world’s rarest bird species, with less than a 1000 estimated to remain in existence.
We were extremely fortunate to witness a rare Flightless Cormorant mating dance during our morning on Fernandina and, in the process, learned a lot about these extremely unusual birds. Hope you enjoy!
